If you've completed an accutane cycle, please respond.

How old were you when you were on it?

How long were you on it?

How many mg per day?

What were the results like?

My doctor says that 6 months is necessary and that's what he put me on so I'm curious when I see others on it for just 3 - 4 months.

My doctor says that 6 months is necessary and that's what he put me on so I'm curious when I see others on it for just 3 - 4 months.

I was 26 when I was first put on 'tane.

I was on it for six full months.

My dosages were as follows: 40 mg/day first two months, 60mg/day second three months, 80mg/day last month.

Had a minor IB in the first month and each time the dosage was upped, but it wasn't anything major. Had redness of the face, total loss of oil, and other side effects that came and went. Overall, my face improved loads while on it. After I finished my course, the doc prescribed Yasmin BCP and Tazorac cream for upkeep. Six months later, my face is still great. I get the occasional tiny zit, but it usually goes away w/in a day.
